Though monsoon can be pleasant at the same time, it can be treacherous too. In a recent set of tragic events, another person succumbed to death when they stepped on an open manhole. Last year too, the city had lost Dr Deepak Amarapurkar due to he falling in the manhole during the floods. The tragic events are an indicator of how there still exist open manholes even after several cries reported by the public. People have voiced their discontent regarding such issues. Hence, the people decided to take the matter into their own hands.
Tweets on the issue Mumbai Manhole
The two founders of Media Tribe, Mr Sunil Gupta and Ms Rima Mishra have both posted strong tweets on the issue in an attempt to awaken the concerned people and cover up the open manholes. In his tweet, Mr Sunil suggested that the BMC install Manhole guard which will prevent people from falling into them. Ms Rima re-tweeted the same post saying that despite multiple attempts, no action has been taken and so, someone needs to step up to the matter. All these two selfless souls want is to bring this issue in light in front of the honourable Chief Minister Mr Devendra Fadnavis so that something can be done about it and the society can become a better and safer place for its people.
“Our idea was very well received by the public who felt that the government fails to do anything about the manholes menace and it was time that we share our ideas with the government and We just did our duty as citizens of the country!” - Said Sunil Gupta and Rima Mishra, Founders - Media Tribe
This is a brave move by these two brave citizens as it’s up to the common public to raise a concern to bring a change. We salute Sunil and Rima for their brave efforts! In a hope to witness a change towards the safety of the citizens…
Dear BMC and Mumbai Police, Can we get this installed in manholes to prevent people from drowning inside the same. Since it's Rainy season and there are chances of accident. #JustSaying Hope this Helps :) pic.twitter.com/TAsWD1PIIk— Sunil Gupta (@HeySunilGupta) June 9, 2018
